The McMurdo SMARTFIND M15S AIS Receiver with Splitter is a low cost receiver that puts AIS technology within the reach of even those on a limited budget. It receives all Class A, Class B, AIS SART, AIS MOB and AIS Base Station transmissions, plotting their positions directly on your chartplotter or PC/Mac using the PC AIS Viewer software supplied. At only 128 x 88 x 36 mm it is compact and easy to install and set up, supporting integration with existing navigation systems via its NMEA0183 or USB interfaces.
The SMARTFIND M15S has the added innovation of a built in VHF Splitter, providing shared antenna capability with a user’s VHF Radio, making the M15S more cost effective and simpler to install (as no additional aerial is needed). The M15S can be externally or USB powered.
